Description Jian Gao 2005-04-14 14:52:36 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.40607)

Description of problem:
When I'm using Microsoft 2000 server backup utility to backup large files from windows 2000 servers (4-8 machines) to this Fedora machine through samba, the machine sometime froze (hung); if I unplug the network cable, the machine will go back to work normally.

I knew there're some patches related to r8169. Do the new Fedora kernel rpms include the patch or not?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Using NETGEAR GA311 Gigabit PCI NIC.
2.Fedora will load r8169 driver.
3.Have accounts on Fedora for SAMBA access.
4.Write high volumn data stream to the Fedora through SAMBA: the clients are Microsoft backup, backing its data up to Fedora.

Expected Results:  When volumn of data stream is reaching the NIC capacity, the r8169 will cause the machine hung; if unplug the NIC, the machine will recover immediately itself.

Can you still reproduce the issue with the patches I sent to you (i.e.
2.6.12-rc3 + http://oss.sgi.com/projects/netdev/archive/2005-03/msg00870.html)

Comment 2 Pekka Savola 2005-05-16 15:37:08 EDT
This kernel isn't provided by Fedora Legacy, and this issue doesn't seem to have
security implications; reopen against a later Fedora Core release if the problem
still persists there.
